Floating on water, sunshine on my skin, wind in my hair, music in my ears, smile on my face, and peace in my mind… Few of the various words I can use to express my breathtaking & unforgettable experience with friends.
I always believed that being on vacation is not only about geography (where you are); being on vacation is a state of mind! Even if I was on a river few minutes away from where I live, my mind was nevertheless able to take me on a trip, on a journey, on a flight of ideas & thoughts. From decisions in life, to life responsibilities. Translating ideas & dreams to a happy living reality…
I have spent some valuable time with the wake boat captain, learning about the “floating on water” world. One interesting Fact: the life expectancy of a boat is measured in time rather than in distance. In other words, it’s about counting the number of hours rather than measuring the number of kilometres a boat has travelled. Thus, it’s not about how far you go, as it would be the case of a car. It’s about how long your engine stays on for. You can remain stationary with an engine on for hours & your boat will “grow older”.
Could this concept of time/distance serve as an analogy to life?
Quotes that truly & precisely represent my thoughts on the boat
“By prevailing over all obstacles and distractions, one may unfailingly arrive at his chosen goal or destination.” – Christopher Columbus.
“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.” -Charles Darwin
